Attention: Faculty, Academic Staff, Postdocs, and Graduate Students

April 14, 2023, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Kellogg Center, East Lansing, Michigan
Lunch, beverages, and parking passes are provided


Spend a full day with MSU's Broader Impacts (BI) consultants away from your everyday responsibilities working on the BI plan for your next National Science Foundation (NSF) proposal. We will start with a quick overview of the fundamentals of broader impacts and an introduction to the ARIS Broader Impacts Toolkit, a suite of online tools to assist you in developing your BI plan (first hour). BI consultants will be on hand throughout the day to answer your questions and provide individual consultation and feedback on your BI plan (rest of the day). BI retreat participants will come away with portions of their BI plans written.
